into these intership programs for young people. i met a guy who worked for the public tv station in boston and retired from that job and wanted to be a park ranger. he couldn't figure out how to get there so he joined the internship program. there wasn't anybody nells his class over the age of 19. i met a woman in denver whose daughter went through teach for america and as she watched her daughter teach in a los angeles classroom she was so moved she applied for teach for america herself. she was in her late 50's herself and ended up in a dorm room in houston in 115 degree temperatures sharing a bathroom down the hall with three 22-year-olds. whether they were repelling down from the ceiling or speaking in the side door there are more and more people trying to find these path ways to purpose. we created at encore.org the fellowship program which was designed to be a front door for many people who wanted to make this passage. it started in silicon valley with ten people who had careers in the corporate sector and wanted to work in the environment and with kids with poverty but had no idea to get there.

love boston, and i went to school up there in high school. there are a lot of smart people up there, but i always resented the fact that people in the north think that people in texas are deserving of terms like corn opponent. i don't know about you but it upsets me because we do have people that are a little capable of doing things, including the then president of the united states, lyndon johnson. who in a six-week period kept the kennedy team, because it was essential to be able to keep the momentum going on the agenda that had stalled for three years, effectively. he kept the kennedy team which showed the leadership skill of humility. he had the leadership skill of doinged determination, and he had the skills of creating a strategy and he implemented in a six-week period a 25% across-the-board cut in income tax rates. believe it or not it's a liberal democrat, the idea was to cut taxes to raise revenue to begin to fund the great society programs. he went to the senate which was opposed to his ultimate goal of significant civil rights legislation, and convinced the dean of the se

to be speaking at two synagogues this weekend in boston. one reform, one conservative. there was recognition that there was violence and bloodshed on all sides and think mostly you're hearing anxiety. long-te long-term. there has to be a diplomatic solution. while i don't want to necessarily be partisan about it. i would just observe that 70% of american jews voted for barack obama. his attitudes towards potential peace in the middle east between the israelis and the palestinian was far more positive than that expressed by mitt romney to the degree that gives you an idea where that is coming from. that part is clear. >> i'll give you the last word because we're moving out of time. our eyes are going to stay on all of these questions. moving forward, we're going to talk a bit about our other foreign policy entanglements. stay with us. the president is in thailand today as part of a three-day international trip. tomorrow he will stop in burma, making the first ever sitting president to visit the southeast asian nation. we'll focus more on the president's second term agenda and the one thing we

since then, they make more u-turns than a boston cab driver trying to get to the place where he was. when you look at the results of this election come you can try connect connection between policies president obama has led on a devoted support he got. if in the face republicans decide what they need to do is go back and do it even more conservative again, far be it for me to persuade them otherwise. we got another election in four years. i can levitate, but it wouldn't be wise. >> on the religion question i agree was blaise entry into. if you look at the polling of people less likely to vote for a candidate because they were more men, the majority of his people thought barack obama is a muslim who was born in canada country in kenya. it wasn't there to make it a negative, but it is true democrats did not make it an issue. >> some of the positions from me to turn the primaries really hurt specifically with regard to immigration reform. it is newt gingrich is that romney was the most conservative on that issue in any country where it is the fastest-growing bloc of voters, that's real
